Pay tribute to those lost at war when you wear this beautiful Poppy Flower Remembrance Scarf. Designed by Diane Wasserman, the scarf is a tribute to honor all soldiers who have served and given their lives for freedom.
World War II saw the biggest mobilization of American servicemen in the history of our nation and the second largest total of combat deaths in the history of the country. In 1954, US Congress established November 11th as the official day to honor American veterans of all wars changing the previous name "Armistice Day" to "Veterans Day", which honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice of dying for their country. Additionally, the symbol of the poppy flower was adopted by military veterans' groups in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Honoring the centennial of America’s involvement in World War I, the New-York Historical Society exhibition World War I Beyond the Trenches explores how artists across generations, aesthetic sensibilities, and the political spectrum used their work to depict, memorialize, promote, or oppose the divisive conflict.
